FMA 441 - National Cinemas

[3 credit(s)]
Prerequisites: FMA 141, FMA 142 and FMA 243; or permission of instructor. This course focuses on the National Cinema traditions of one or several countries, exploring the artistic styles, themes, and unique cultural perspectives seen in the cinematic output of different nations, comparing industries, influences, and audiences to both Hollywood and non-Hollywood film. As the world of film has fundamentally changed with Bollywood (India), and even Nollywood (Nigeria) challenging the primacy of the Hollywood entertainment film, our understanding of National cinemas must also expand to address the increasingly transnational nature of filmmaking and the broader media industries. The specific focus of the course in a given semester will be determined by the instructor and might be as narrowly focused as Japanese Post-War Animation or as broad as Latin American Film Industries.
